I've always had to be on the 3 day delay for purchases, but I've never been denied until yesterday. Academy said I had been denied the purchase of a S&W 15-22 (no opinions please). Just a couple of months ago I purchased a FNAR from a local gun shop with no problems (except the 3 day delay). Earlier in the year I purchased a handgun from another shop (same delay) WTF is going on that now I am being denied. One thing is the Academy guy had me line out and initial the form in several places where in the other stores they would have me start over if I made a mistake. I'm just going to blame Academy. I went to another shop and filled out paperwork for the same rifle ($50 cheaper anyway). I also emailed the NICS website requesting the reason for my denial. Anyone have any experience with something like this?
